Paris Jackson

Deep in Dark 'Cutting' World

6/24/2013 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Jackson
will be in treatment for months, for a dark depression that is putting her life in serious jeopardy ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Paris' family is scoffing at law enforcement claims that her "suicide attempt" earlier this month was merely a cry for help.  We're told when the bandages on her arm were removed, the damage was "horrifying."  As one source put it, "Paris absolutely tried to kill herself, and it wasn't the first time."

Our sources say Paris is deep into the world of cutting.  We've seen Paris' Tumblr page, and it's filled with pics of death, suicide and cutting.  Several pics show teenagers putting guns in their mouths.  As for cutting, the pics are graphic and very bloody.  In one pic you see a girl with scissors cutting her arm with a caption, "I f**king hate myself."

Another pic shows an arm with writing over the cutting area that reads, "Suicide slice here."

In one posting, there's a piece of paper with the following type:  "Why did you try to kill yourself?"  The answer:  "You told me to be happy."

And there are other photos of young girls who have just cut themselves and blood is everywhere.

And it looks like Paris reached out from time to time to get help, because there are several postings which have anti-cutting messages.

Family sources tell TMZ ... Paris is "doing better" at UCLA Medical Center but is still in denial and is fighting therapy.   Although she has no desire now to cut herself again, we're told professionals are warning the family they need to figure out the triggers that plunge her into darkness.

Sources tell us ... Paris will move from UCLA to another treatment center, and she could be there for 3 months.

If the day ever comes when she does commit suicide, you should feel bad TMZ. But go ahead and leak out everything about her whether it's true or not and you can have a childs death on your conscience and maybe commit suicide yourselves. *******s.

Paris Jackson Upset Taped Deposition Was Played In Open Court During Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Posted on Jun 24, 2013 @ 2:57AM | By Jen Heger

Paris Jackson , who remains hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center following a suicide attempt almost three weeks ago, became very upset when told an excerpt of her videotaped deposition was played for the jury in the wrongful death trial of her father, Michael Jackson, is exclusively reporting.

Michael Jackson’s only daughter, was told by her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, during a visit last week, “that an excerpt of the deposition was played to the jury. It upset Paris because the trial has brought back a lot of very painful memories. Debbie didn’t go into a lot of details about the trial, but felt Paris needed to know. Paris is still extremely fragile, and is being very, very closely monitored,” a source tells us.

As previously reported, looking poised and confident, Paris smiled, laughed and joked with lawyers deposing her in the billion dollar wrongful death lawsuit of her late father – just months before she attempted suicide.

In the brief excerpt of the deposition played for jurors last week, Paris made shocking statements about former nanny, Grace Rwaramba.

Charged Paris: “My dad didn’t like her so he tried to keep her away from us. He would send her to run errands a lot… He said she was sneaky, she was not an honest person and she lied a lot.”

When asked why, if the pop star didn’t like Ugandan-born Rwaramba, he did he not fire her, Paris testified: “He felt bad. She didn’t really have a lot of money.”

However, family sources tell us, Grace has visited Paris in the hospital, including after the deposition was made public.

“Paris loves Grace, and the feeling is mutual. They have a very complex relationship that is complicated by Paris’ aunts & uncles. However, Paris continues to allow Grace to visit. In fact, Paris has specifically asked for Grace to visit,” a family insider previously told us.

Perhaps she was abused by a close family member?

Get this young woman away from the goofy Jacksons! Michael Jackson bought this child and is in no way the father. It seems Debbie Rowe had these children with Michaels dermatologist Arnie Kleiner and Michael Jackson paid for them. Of course she's screwed up. The Jackson denial that all is fine is going to see this lovely young woman in a coffin and that would be really terrible. The Jacksons aren't fooling anyone. The courts should step in and give custody to Debbie Rowe as Paris has seemed to bond with her as of late. Very sad to read this.

It sounds like a severe ongoing vitamin deficiency compounded by her grief from losing her father and previous lifestyle, further compounded by the dysfunctional Jackson lifestyle and a lack of supervision and connection with the matriarch who is supposed to be providing a secure homelife for her. God knows what the youngest is going through being homeschooled and not socialized. Paris appeared to be into sports at school, but there's obviously a big gap in her life that she has withdrawn into. She should have never been allowed to go on the internet unsupervised. This "cutting" stuff is about the lamest crap yet foisted onto kids. And it's even "old school" now because that's ridiculous behavior previously practiced by both Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. Now Paris is drugged up by the psych doctors who have their claws into her fortune. I doubt that she even has a chance now of ever leading a normal life...not that she ever had one.

From a scool psychologist-please consider removing these images, as other teenagers (espec.) tend to be copy same behaviors and find new ideas how to self-harm. By giving attention to "how" and showing these kinds of pictures, the behavior tends to be idiolized. Please reconsider....

All this is coming out. Jackson and Rowe had an agreement. She kept up her end of the agreement. She was to give up all her parental rights. She did.

Jackson was trying to appear normal with kids, he was trying to put as much distance from all the child molestation accusations and charges as he could.

Problem is they never went away.

Debbie Rowe is not the bad guy in this. She probably told her kids the truth of what really happened.

There is a good chance the kids already knew this.

It's the Jacksons greed and the kids are smack in the middle of it. These kids are the Jacksons money.

I have to agree with poster #1 cutting is usually done by younger girls and it is most definietly a coping mechanism. Just looking at we can see of this poor kids life I am not surprised. How she was raised, shielded from the real world, the things she must read about her father, who I'm sure she loved more than anything. Now living with this bickering family ... I am not surprised she's been cutting. I am also not surprised that it may have developed into a true depression. At that age kids often can't see past the moment, see no way out. I feel bad for her. And shame on the family if they knew all of this an did nothing to try and get her help before now. If TMZ was able to gain access to her Facebook then I find it hard to believe the family couldn't. I know if that had been my daughters FB I would have knows something was up and done .. something.. anything. Then again it doesn't seem like many in this family care about the kids, or each other.. just who gets the money and when.

I think MJ was right when he kept them away from the public. This is what fame does to people. The media is all over their case not allowing them to have a normal life. They are in the spotlight something their dad never wanted and had a reason for. It may have happened due to unhappiness caused by everyone wanting to
get into their life.
